Boy are we getting back in our kitchen groove!!!
Matt made CRACKERS today! [Remember his old recipe!?]
Cheesy, wheaty crackers. This is a teaser for his post later this week when he’s going to post the recipe – he’s got a few tweaks to do first.
I had a handful for a snack
While the oven was hot, we went ahead and baked this sweet potato for dinner! Multitasking.
On the Six O’Clock Menu: Black Bean + Sweet Potato Enchiladas!
Larbs made these a week ago and I’d been thinking about putting some kind of Mexican bake on the menu. Done and done. They were SUPER easy!
Giant sweet potato mashed with 3/4 of a can of black beans, plus cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, 1 can of green chilies and cilantro
Pour 1/4 cup salsa verde (I did it Larbs style, but you could use enchilada sauce too) on the bottom of a baking dish. Stuff filling into 6 tortillas (I used regular flour kind) and sprinkle with more salsa and [freshly grated] jack cheese.
Bake at 350* for 25 minutes! [I’d recommend a pinch of cinnamon next time too!] My mom’s friend Judy [a blog reader!] gave us this lovely baking dish!
Salad chopping for the side nutrients
Spinach, tomato, green pepper, avocado, cilantro
Cooks cocktails – Manhattans! A big one for him, a splash for me.
Faaabulous meal! We have two for leftovers!
Afterwards we went on a 2 mile walk around the neighborhood. Rock on!
Still loving The Help, although I only read 30 pages or less a night! I’m such a slow reader. But recommend it for sure. Love the dialect, and the plot’s getting good!
